Two Mower County residents were among those injured in a Thursday afternoon accident in Winona.

According to the Minnesota State Patrol accident report, a 2000 Ford Ranger was heading north on Highway 61 at about 4:11 p.m. on Thursday when it went to turn left onto Gilmore Avenue in Winona. As it was turning, a 2013 Toyota Sienna was heading south and the two vehicles collided in the intersection. The collision forced the Ford into a nearby 2007 Jeep Liberty, which was then pushed off the road.

The Winona County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene.
